glazed lemon brownies

First day of spring on Friday!  Can I get a woot woot?  I don’t know about you guys but I am loving the weather.  Here in Utah the sun has been shining, and the weather has been amazing.  I sat out on a blanket in the sun yesterday and soaked up the rays with my little babe.  Give that girl some grapes, sun and a blanket and she is happy.  We both were in heaven!

Let us celebrate spring with these Lemon Brownies.  I am not going to admit to how many squares that I ate.  But I wouldn’t have easily eaten the entire pan if I didn’t stop myself.  But don’t worry.  I left a tiny square for the hubby.  🙂


These lemon brownies are AMAZING!!!  Like I can’t stop thinking about them, want to make another pan right now amazing.  My hubby isn’t a lemon lover….  I know… gasp!  But he LOVED that tiny little square that I left him!  These lemon brownies are literally one of the best lemon treats that I have had!

My favorite part about these brownies is that they are so easy!  Grab some lemons from the store and you probably have all of the ingredients on hand.  They mix in no time at all and are ready to throw into the oven!  But lets be honest.  The glaze is probably my favorite part to these brownies.  It is the perfect sweet lemon finishing touch.   I know that you guys are going to love these brownies!

  1. Oh game on! I am sooooooooooooo making these.

  2. What does the C and T stand for? ( I am new to this, sorry)

  3. Hi there!
    These look yummy. I will have to try them!

  4. I’m making these for myself ,(sharing with family of course), for my Birthday that’s coming up! I can’t wait!

  5. I just made these, must say they are quite lovely, thank you 🙂

  6. Lemon brownies look amazing!! Going to make but not much of a baker so need to know if flour is plain or self rising? Thank you!!

  7. I woke up and saw this recipe and made it straight away. Way too sweet and needs at least another cup of flour to soak up all the butter. Delicious though. Oh and added a passionfruit to the glaze and poked holes in it with a skewer so it soaked it up. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    These are pretty freakin good! I doubled the recipe and put in a 9 by 13 inch pan. I used only one whole lemon zest still since the lemon I used was pretty big. Thanks! Gunna have to make these again this week since my sisters coming to town. 🙂

  9. Is the recipe easily doubled ? Then what size pan do you suggest using ? One that would make the brownies thicker or a large flat- ish pan like a sheet cake pan?

  11. Jonathan says:

    These were awesome! I also created a lime variation, and added white chocolate chips

  12. Made these tonight and they may be my new favorite dessert!

  13. Harriet says:

    On my way to kitchen right now to make these up. Having guest over tonight for BBQ. Will double the recipe and put in two 8×8 pans so they can take one home. Will let you know how they come out. Thanks

  14. I make these. All. Of. The. Time.

    They’re an absolute hit – even with those who aren’t a huge fan of lemon!

    I’ve even topped with fresh strawberries or a little toasted coconut in the past; both were a huge hit 🙂

  15. Hi, do you think i could put some strawberry fillings or jam and swirl it in these brownies? I made them once and it was great! Thank you in advance 🙂

  16. I make these all the time! Recently, because lemons weren’t on sale, I substituted it for 2 small limes. They were hit! I’m going to experiment and try out orange today. This is one of my go-to recipes because it doesn’t take long to make and it is amazing! In fact, we made these for my daughters teacher for the first day of school this year. Thanks for sharing!
